GlassBoy Studios opens in Arcadia

Joel Rayburn’s GlassBoy Studios neon-lighting company — also home to Tourist Trap Tees –opened for business last week in downtown Arcadia, Oklahoma, next to Route 66 and the town’s famous Round Barn.

The above photo is shows the business and the custom-painted Route 66 van driven by GlassBoy Studios’ first customer, Greg Gaszak.

The business is housed in the nearly-century-old Brooks Building that once housed a grocery store, feed store and welding shop. Renovation work on the building began last summer.

GlassBoy Studios makes smaller-scale replica neon signs for classic Route 66 business. Rayburn told me the building has to be modified a bit for full-scale operations, but he’ll be able to do neon-tubing repairs and bending this week.

Tourist Trap Tees designs T-shirts inspired by Route 66 legends.

In addition, GlassBoy also will offer the photography and/or artwork of longtime Route 66 roadies Jerry McClanahan, Jim Ross, Shellee Graham and Alison Lamons.

GlassBoy Studios will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
